i have wordlists which i would like to enhance through texts. For that purpose i need a macro which reads a text and splitts it into words and put the words into three columns. Lets assume the column where the words are supposed to be put is columns A,C and E. The column A should contain single words containing no spaces from Text, column C should contain compound words which have one space between them and in column E those compounds which have two spaces. Now i will put my existing wordlist in column G before i start splitting texts. The macro should put only those words from text into column A,C and E which dont already exist in columns A,B,C,D,E,F and G. In Column B i will place the corrected or checked words from column A. In column D i will type the corrections and checked versions of those compunds existing in column C. And the column F will contain the compound words which are corrected and checked from Column E.
Column A--> single words splitted from text through macro (containing no spaces) Column B--> corrected and checked versions of words from column A through user Column C--> compound words containing one space splitted from text through macro (for example:"etwas möchten" or "do something") Column D-->corrected version of C through user Column E-->compound words containing two space splitted from text through macro (for example:"sich uerberzeugen lassen" or "down in dumps") Column F-->corrected E Column G--> existing dictionary wordlist through user
Signes like ".", ":",";", "/" or quotation signe itself should be seen as seperator. And the words or compounds splitted from the text should not contain these signs.
The text will be put in another sheet in the same excel file. Lets call that sheet "text". The macro should search for words through whole sheet ignoring empty cells or columns.
None of the columns should be filtered or ordered. The columns shound not be deleted as well. That way the user wont have to correct the same word each time cus the corrected as well as the original words will be there.
A thread with similar purpose was made sent by AdamDay as well, where rylo has posted a good solution already.
I have a column with cells that look like: XYZ - JobABC - Area 1-A. I'd like to split the column into to and have it look like: XYZ <next column> Job ABC - Area 1-A Normally I'd use the text to columns function and "-" as delimiter, however, there are other instances of "-" which I do not want separated. Note that the XYZ can vary in length and therefore fixed width will not work either. I have attached a small sample with the different variations that I could encounter.
I'm prepping this file to be pushed through mail merge. The sheet has 25,213 rows.
Column I contains a long string of character (for the purposes of my project the field is called Subjects) and $ used as delimiters (approx 70 or as few as 1). This column needs to be split apart by $ and the separate Subjects that result from splitting apart by $ needs to be placed on a separate line. Once each Subject is on a separate line, all of the Subjects need to be lined up in Column I, one under another (the obvious result at this point is GREATLY increasing the number of rows in the sheet). Next, all of the data that is contained in each Subject's originating row will be copied to each of newly created rows (without copying over the Subject contained in column I).
After writing this all out, I realize (once again).
I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.
The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:
Zipcode Zone 115 54 Gothenburg 443 67 Skane
What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.
Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.
I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.
I have one column in a worksheet that I want to split into 2 columns. If there is one "(" in the cell, I want to split at that point, but if there are two "(" 's, I want to split at the second occurrence. I can use the Like operator to identify the cells, but is there a way to specify which delimiter in a sequence of identical delimiters to split at? Here are templates (not actual data) of the two type of cells:
Name1 (ABC) (Name2, Name3) Name4 (Name5, Name6)
For the first, I want to split on the second "(", before Name2, and for the second, I want to split on the first "(", before Name5.
I've got a column of data containing addresses. What I want to do is split the column after certain keywords such as "street", "road", "close" etc and move any words that come after these in the cell into the next cell to the right.
For example, in one cell I might have "54 Burberry Road Finsbury London"... what I want to do is have part of the text remain in the original cell i.e. "54 Burberry Road" and the rest, "Finsbury London", moved to the cell on the right.
Not all cells in the column will match this format so if it doesn't find a keyword, nothing will occur and it will move to the next cell down etc. until it reaches the end of the column.
There are no delimiters (apart from the spaces) between the words.
I haven't figured out all of the keywords that I will need to search for yet but I should be able to extrapolate from something fairly generic.
We are changing management systems here and in order to do so we need to provide the names and addresses of over 400 different people. Our current management system stores people's addresses as a whole for example; 32, Example Street, Town, County, Postcode.
I cant extract just the numbers because I only need the house number and not the postcode.
After searching several forums I thought I had solved it with this.
Cell A1 is the extracted address from current management system reading 32, Example Street, Town, County, IU13 8TY
Cell B1 is =LEFT(A1, SEARCH(" ",O15,1))
Cell C1 is =SUM(MID(0&B1,LARGE(ISNUMBER(--MID(B1,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))),1))*ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))))+1,1)*10^ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1)))/10)
That only gives me the number "3" though and I need 32.
Basically A1:A400 will be addresses as above and in cell B1:B400 I need just there house number at the start.
I have a listbox populated with a number followed by description. How do I write code to extract the number and description to different cells. Listbox example: "1234ES - Project Description". Now I want "1234ES" in one cell and "Project Description" in cell left of number.
Part I... I got the answer 1987, and now I want Excel to take the numbers out and display... 1 in one box then i set + in the next, then 9 in the 3ed. box, next box +, then 8, then +, then 7 in the last so that i can have Excel make a SUM of it all to 25.
How do I split 1987 and put the numbers in different boxes?
Part II... I want to make A=1 B=2... all the way up to 9, then start over again with J=1 K=2... up to 9 again and then over again.
So that if I write my name it comes out as a value of 14 (Odd = O=6 D=4 D=4 =14)
(AJSØ=1 BKTÅ=2 CLU=3 DMV=4 ENW=5 FOX=6 GPY=7 HQZ=8 IRÆ=9, It's the Norwegian alphabet, that's why there are some extra letters)
So how do I set up my Excel so that is ANY name is typed in I can get it out into a number from the values assign?
I have a mass of data which look something like this:
and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.
So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:
and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.
I have a column in one of my spreadsheets that I would like to split. There's currently not anything that can be used as a delimiter, nor can I use fixed width. the cells in question start with numbers and end with letters.
1.0 Develop Vision and Strategy 1.1 Define the business concept and long-term vision 1.1.1 Assess the external environment 126.96.36.199 Analyze and evaluate competition 188.8.131.52 Identify economic trends 184.108.40.206 Identify political and regulatory issues 220.127.116.11 Assess new technology innovations 18.104.22.168 Analyze demographics .... etc
I need to split this into two columns column A should contain 1.0 and column B should contain Develop Vision and Strategy . Ex: 22.214.171.124 Identify economic trends in column A then column B - 126.96.36.199 column C - Identify economic trends.
Because I have about 50 columns, I don't want to use Text to Columns. Is there a formula or macro I could use? It doesn't have to be as clean like I layed it out (in regards to the column title) but I just to really separate the two numbers into two cells.
